The pretty town of Dornoch has many shops and cafes to browse, The Jail and it’s sister shop Country Interiors across the road are recommended, and for food and drinks, try The Carnegie Courthouse, The Castle, Luigi’s and more. Like all the East coast villages, Dornoch has a beautiful beach, which is almost continuous with that of the neighbouring village Embo. Dornoch Lochans offers the opportunity to fish, play golf, croquet or boules, or just observe the array of birdlife attracted by the lochans themselves. The famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club with its Championship course is also located here along the beachside.
Mackie and Eimar were fantastic hosts nothing too much trouble
The cottage had everything we needed and a lot of thought has gone into making it as comfortable and user friendly as possible
The cottage is out of this world and no expense has been spared. Mackie and Eimear have thought of everything inside and outside of the cottage (the hot tub is AMAZING!!!) and they are the most amazing hosts.
We cannot wait to come back.
